My Daily Art
Of course they’ve stood together for some seriously game-changing initiatives at the WAG. They were the co-curators of the WAG’s largest contemporary Indigenous exhibition on record (Insurgence Resurgence), they sit on the Gallery’s Indigenous Advisory Circle; and aside from their curatorial, academic, and community advocacy work, they’re both practicing artists.
Jaimie is the Curator of Indigenous and Contemporary Art at the WAG – and among her many shows, she managed to build a full-scale half pipe in Eckhardt Hall for Boarder X. Julie held the joint WAG and University of Winnipeg Chair in the History of Indigenous Art, and has led the way with the Indigenization of the Gallery.
Together, they’ve supported, challenged, and inspired me as we respond to the TRC’s Calls to Actions for museums, beginning right here at the WAG on Treaty One and Metis Homeland.
While the WAG is temporarily closed, this series of posts from Director & CEO, Dr. Stephen Borys, shares an artwork from the collection every day until the Gallery reopens. Follow along on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, or visit our stories section for this and more [email protected] content.
